Trout & Salmon (UK) - - FISHING REPORTS -

EDEN RODS ex­pe­ri­enced a very chal­leng­ing 2018 with some ex­treme weather con­di­tions. The early spring saw some ex­tremely cold con­di­tions and this was fol­lowed by a heat­wave which lasted for many weeks. Salmon, trout and sea-trout were af­fected by the heat and proved dif­fi­cult to catch. Many fish held back in the lower river pools but in the main were very dif­fi­cult to tempt. Odd ones were caught and this was the pat­tern un­til late in the sea­son when lower river rods had some good sport. This was not the case fur­ther up the river. Look­ing to the 2019 sea­son, one thing is for cer­tain, an­glers will be out af­ter the spring fish that run the Eden. They are a real prize to catch. Brown trout fish­ing opens on March 15 with fish likely to be out of con­di­tion for sev­eral weeks.
